Sui Mai Dumplings

Sui Mai Dumplings are an Asian type of dumpling that is sort of open faced.  This is my interpretation of Sui Mai with a ground pork filling and a whole shrimp.  These were so darn tasty and not too hard either!  You do need a steamer basket for these, but they are pretty cheap.

1/2 lb shrimp, peeled & deveined
1 green onion, sliced
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 lb ground pork
1 T oyster sauce
1 teaspoon red wine
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 T soy sauce
One small can water chestnuts, chopped
1/2 C Panko breadcrumbs
About 18 wontons

Mix together the green onion, ginger, pork, oyster sauce, red wine, sesame oil, soy sauce, water chestnuts, and Panko. Take a wonton and put about 1 T of the filling into the center. Push a shrimp down into the filling.  Gather up the sides of the wonton around the filling, leaving the top open.  Place the wontons in a greased mini muffin tin.  Refrigerate until slightly firm and ready to steam.

Line the steamer basket with parchment paper.  Place the wontons in the baskets, being careful that they don't touch. Steam over a pot of boiling water until the wontons are soft and the filling is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
